On being collected...

So I was on the phone with my friend, David, who keeps me informed of things I need to know about like nice reviews and the date my new book will be released (Sept 1st according to Amazon.)

Anyway, so we're chatting about God-knows-what, and he suddenly says, "Someone is selling a collectable Would-Be Witch for more than double the cover price."

I pause, perplexed, and say, "What's collectable about it?" I have visions of someone gilding the lettering in real gold, and I'm just about ready to sign on to buy that fabulous copy myself, when he answers, "You signed it."

This response leads to about five minutes of laughing out loud on my part.

I quite doubt that the seller will find a buyer for the book at that price, but I wish them well and thank them for cracking me up.

Meanwhile, anyone with an unsigned copy who wants to convert it into a collector's item, contact me through my website. I'll happily send you an autographed bookplate to stick inside, and it won't cost you a thing.

I know I'd like one! ;)

I have a few signed books. I cherish them.

The one that might actually be worth something is Lewis Grizzard's, "They Tore Out My Heart and Stomped That Sucker Flat," since he went to the Great Library in the Sky a while back. :-(

Marshall -

I'm hoping that our paths will cross this summer in Austin and I'll be able to sign your copy then. ;)

I love the idea that Heaven's a great library in the sky. What a great image. :)

I would love one, or to send my book to be signed or to buy a signed copy *shrug* whichever works best

I would also love a signed copy to show my kids they are a bit too young to read it but they keep asking

Please send me an e-mail through my website with your address and I'll be delighted to send you a bookplate (and one of my new bookmarks that should be arriving any day!)


Kissing the Suspect Release!

Chapter 1 Callie Melville was wanted by the law, but to put it that way made things sound worse than they were. She hoped. The rumors...
